OK(ish) but wouldn't buy it again.
Most will want to know how it compares with the leading brand. Not well unfortunately, in my opinion, but then it doesn't claim to have the same ingredients, this being malted barley based and not malted barley/wheat mixture based. Also the leading brand is fortified with various vitamins whereas this doesn't claim to be. In terms of taste, it comes down to what you are used to really and this is noticeably different. Having said that, if you'd never tasted the leading brand and started with this, you may well be quite happy with it, as I say it's what you are used to. Even if you have been using the leading brand you may be satisfied with this one - give it a try like I did and draw your own conclusions, we are all different in our tastes.
Give weight in spoons please
Nice enough drink, but why dont you give number of spoonful per cup? 23g to be added to 200ml of hot milk. I don't want to bring out scales to weigh for a drink. Please Tesco, give measurements in spoons and cups.
Out of stock now. Not surprised why.
This is not a typical "tesco cheap", much better. I bought it first to try it, as I ran out of O***, then I hooked on it. It is flavourful, malty and much better than any other alternative malt drinks apart from the original O*** but very close to it. I cannot drink any other brands except these two. At the time I am writing this, out of stock. Not surprised. It is that good.
Good for the price & less sweet than named brand.
Having seen the mixed reviews, I was a bit doubtful about this, but I thought I'd have a go for the price, and was very pleasantly surprised. It's less sweet than the brand leader (which shall not be named) - but that's a good thing. And, yes, if you use too much it comes up a bit gloopy, but I find a mixture of half-and-half water and milk and not heaping the spoon too much produces a good compromise which makes a pleasantly malty hot drink to amble off to bed with ...
Great alternative to the leading Malt drink brand!
I grew up with the leading malted drink brand, however it is now way over priced in my opinion, so this is a much cheaper & acceptable alternative. Also if you simply add some extra milk to the mixture, it enhances a nice creamy taste & what I also like is that it's not too sickly sweet.
Yuk. Horrible! A kind of gluey, gloopy texture and the flavour doesn't make up for it either....
I didn’t like this at all it didn’t really taste o
I didn’t like this at all it didn’t really taste of anything it was like I’d just got hot milk it seems to be thick as well and a bit slimy was really hoping I’d like this as it’s so much cheaper than the well known brand
So much nicer than very well known brand
This is so much nicer and not so sweet as a very well known brand its yummy. I was worried this had been discontinued when it seemed to disappear from the virtual shopping aisle a year or so ago. But it reappeared hurrah!! Also it is so much easier to mix in than the other well known brand - just dissolves. Can't recommend this enough.
Lovely drink 😊
I enjoy this drink. Add milk to the powder, warm up in the microwave and it is just as nice as the leading brand one. It is also a lot cheaper.
9 heaped spoon fulls in a mug and it's bland. Would not buy again
